IKEA x ASUS ROG Furniture for Gamers: First Look

IKEA and ASUS ROG announced a collaboration last September, for furniture and accessories targeted at gamers. The first products from this combine are out. From what we can tell, IKEA has given some of its existing home-office and garage furnishings an ASUS ROG trim, but we can also spot some new creations. Among the gear IKEA showed off are standing desks (both manual and motorized), wheeled desktop tower case stands, mats for your gaming chair, peg-boards with pegs, hooks, and Velcro straps for various kinds of hardware and peripherals; wheeled chests of drawers, and other accessories. What we're yet to see from IKEA x ROG, though, is a proper gaming chair. Perhaps one is in the works, since it would have to be a clean-slate design.

kapone32Is the desk for $3999?
It's IKEA, so no. It'll take you three hours to assemble though and there will be a missing screw.
I guess the price is in RMB, so it's around $620 in american money.

If its Chinese currency it should arrive in USA for around 800 dollars.

As long as Asus's involvement is mostly limited to visual ques and does not lead to a degradation of IKEA's stellar quality, I guess it's fine...

Let's not forget the ROG tax.

As pointed out above, it's RMB, the leak is out of China, not Japan. The Y is for Yuan or money/monies.
599 RMB is about $93.

Chinese ok

I wish it was Japanese Yen as the de3sk would have been just under $50 but since it's Chinese "Gungar" was spot on for $800 CAD or about $620 US.

The yen and yuan sign, ¥, is a currency sign used for the Japanese yen and the Chinese yuan currencies when writing in Latin scripts. This monetary symbol resembles a Latin letter Y with a single or double horizontal stroke.

You learn something new every day. Its utterly idiotic to have a same sign for two different currencies but that life.

You get what you pay for, even at IKEA.
Not all their products are crap you know.

$620 is not that bad considering you are paying for the motorized legs and the RGB LED strips, for the desk that is.

Gaming chairs are overrated. Office chairs are as good or better for the majority of people.

I do not exactly see why gaming chair would have to be a clean slate design. Maybe some visual ROG clues but mechanically IKEA does have some pretty good chairs. I am happily sitting in an IKEA chair right now, this one (cost 149€ around here and 129€ for textile version):

Browsing the biggest home buying site in Sweden, you'll find that chair in at least 25% of homes...
It's not a bad chair, but IKEA has fairly poor chairs from an ergonomic point of view. Just chucked ours out, alongside another IKEA chair. Got a pair of proper ergonomic mesh chairs.

Looks like I can finally my retire my GLASHOLM from 2010! And I bet that table will be called RÅGER höhö.

And hopefully the chair isn't of MARKUS quality/comfort.

They have already nice Idasen desk with few variations and a fitting chair to complete the set if you need.

I am more worried about the ROG part than the IKEA... Still rocking an old computer desk from IKEA. It is over 14 years and going strong.
I think, it is nice to have a choice for something affordable. A gaming chair should be an ergonomic chair at the core. If you are going to spend hours on it, you should have good support and posture.
Then you can add your RGB and whatever bells and whistle that are required on a "gaming chair".

Agreed, splurge on a Herman Miller, and have a chair last the rest of your life vs cheap chairs that fall apart in a year or 2.

I f**King love my aeron remastered. Got the leather armrests and full spec, such a joy. I work all night at my desk then go for a run at 4:30 - don't feel too tight or anything.
